linuxpluginwrapper doesn't support flash9 yet, so no, you can't use it
with any native browser.

There is a standalone flash player I believe, but not in the plugin

I wouldn't add a run dependency on linux-firefox though. The plugin
can be used with other browsers as well. A pkg-message would be nice
though. And it needs a run dependency on linux-gtk2.
